Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 33:11


33:11 His substance - Because he hath no inheritance of his own and therefore wholly depends upon thy blessing. The work of his hands - All his holy administrations, which he fitly calls the work of his hands, because a great part of the service of the Levites and priests was done by the labour of their hand and body, whereas the service of evangelical ministers is more spiritual and heavenly. Smite - He pray's thus earnestly for them, because he foresaw they who were to teach and reprove, and chastise others would have many enemies, and because they were under God, the great preservers and upholders of religion, and their enemies were the enemies of religion itself.


Discussion for Deuteronomy 33

  • A disciple
    Dear Joyce; I was just reading in Ezekiel 13 and found clearly written answers to our questions about missing names or tribes. "And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel.." Please read Ezekiel 13!

    Simeon is mentioned 50 times through out the King James Bible, in Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, 1 Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, Ezekiel, Luke, Acts, and Revelation.
    May God bless you.
  • A disciple
    Have you noticed also in Revelation 7, Dan is not mentioned? Is it an indication of some that are not going to make it?
  • Brenda
    Read Genesis 34:25-31 it tells a bit more of Simeon and how he joined forces with is younger brother Levi in the massacre of Shecemites and the reason why it was done.
  • Joyce Joseph
    Why isn't anything said about Simeon. All the other sons of Jacob are mentioned except him. Can anybody explain why?
  • BSP
    Verse 27: Jehovah God is forever a refuge for his people. He is the Almghty and has more power than any other god.
